Free Convection in a Solar Chimney

The secrets of free convection flows

€60,00

In a wide range of engineering applications, the buoyancy force is the main driving force for the fluid flow. However, in the case of numerical investigations, engineers do have problems in setting up such cases or run into troubles/crashes with OpenFOAM®. This training case shows the set-up and geometry preparation of a more complex application. Discount of 50% possible.


  • Description
  • REVIEWS
The free convection analysis was a secret for Holzmann CFD too. After analyzing the numerics and equations used in such simulations, as well as the gained knowledge in the field of computational fluid dynamics, Holzmann CFD handles such problems. The training case models a solar chimney (arbitrary dimensions). The flow field is established based on the buoyancy force. No additional forced convection is applied. The solar panels are modeled using fixed temperature boundary conditions; an extended boundary condition could be implemented but does not influence the buoyancy set-up at all. After the mesh generation (including the layer generation), a decomposition follows up. The solver is operating in PIMPLE mode. The training case also includes the advanced ParaView® and extraordinary Blender® state.

Holzmann CFD does not give any warranty to the numerical results that are obtained within this training case based on the fact that there is no verification or validation.

Requirements
Linux system
the vim text editor (or any editor you prefer)
